Letter From the Editor

You've finally made it to page 103!  Congratulations!  Do you like what you see?  We hope so!!!

Many of you may not know what goes into designing and completing a yearbook.  Basically, we start with 200 blank pages and are let loose!  After deciding on a theme, our yearbook company, Herff Jones, helps us design the cover and divider pages.  After that, the rest is up to us, the yearbook staff.  This year we had 8 people, including ourselves help complete the book.  Everyone picked a section to work on and we hope you like how it turned out.

Most pictures throughout the book are candids taken and submitted by students and staff.  We appreciate any help we can get and thank everyone who helped us out by submitting pictures, taking pictures, or directing us to the person with the pictures we needed.

We would especially like to thank Kim Zukowski, Director of Housing, and our advisor for all our help on OUR book.  Without her, none of this would be possible.

We hope you are enjoying the 151st yearbook and may even join the club next year!
